Reader comment on item: The U.S. Government Defines Jihad
in response to reader comment: meaning of Jihad

Submitted by JOSE A GARCIA (United States), Jan 10, 2009 at 17:30

You expressed in your comment that the definition of jihad as a religious war, using violence and terrorism is from people not muslim or ignorant, but Osama Bin Ladden is a real muslim and he accepted been the head of the attacks against the twin towers in september 11, 2001, where more than three thousand people died, and I saw a real video on tv, muslims dancing and celebrating the horror and pain of a whole nation watching their people dying inside the worst inferno created in the name of jihad by muslims in a country that opened its door to everyone that wants better life and to live in a place were peace and rules are part of a normal life, he openly said that was in the name of jihad, so it seems to be jihad has many meanings for muslims, it depends on what kind of muslim you are at the moment you made the comment.
